If you accept average


People moan. They moan a great deal.

Often that is all that they do, online, indoors, at lunch with colleagues.

Yet that moaning rarely turns into action and often in spite of moaning, people go back or repeat.

Average is what many things are, poor value for money, badly made, badly designed, ineffective, poor service, inedible beige food, unsatisfactory, just OK, unfulfilling.

Yet the moaners go back to that job, that life, that product, that service, that restaurant.

If you accept average in what you choose to do, or in what you choose to buy or use, then average is all you can expect from your life and more ineffective moaning won’t alter anything.

We have to choose to improve, lead, feedback and take action. Vote with your feet on poor service, poor products, average anything.

Also, vote with your feet on yourself and average ideas, average performance, on your average life.

Better comes from taking action, belief, commitment and a desire to not accept average or simply good enough in anything.

Those that have chosen to do better haven’t chosen the easy option, but the hard work and challenge that action involves reaps huge rewards.

After all, there is only upside on pushing yourself to achieve better.

Keep away from the energy vampires


Surround yourself with people who are kind, empathetic, compassionate, loving, interesting and who laugh a lot.

Most importantly, surround yourself with people who want to improve themselves.

You will be amazed what an impact that has on your life. You’ll be amazed too at how few you need of them. We don’t need 500 friends or 1,200 connections or 5,000 followers.

Steer clear of the energy vampires, who suck and drain your energy and time often with negativity, fear, hate, and anger. There are many of them ready to suck you dry.
